An Israeli woman writes a “thank you” note on a board set up near Jerusalem’s Central Bus Station, on Tuesday, April 29, 2014.

The boards have the sentence “I am thankful for…” written on them, with the purpose of getting passersby to complete the sentence and share what they are thankful for.

The idea is to conduct 10 days of giving thanks ahead of the Israeli Independence Day on May 6, with the purpose of creating a new Israeli tradition.

What are you thankful for?

    for one’s mental, emotional and spiritual health, it is important Each and Everyday to remind oneself and to say thank to G-d for all that you have and have been given in life. even the things we don’t consider or think about, like being about like being able to see and hear, being able to take care of one’s self and do for one’s self, remembering that not everyone is so blessed, and to be grateful for the blessings we have been given…
